Designing a home is a challenging and demanding task. A classy, well-thought-out home is more than just curating all the nice, expensive furniture and Instagram-worthy decors money can buy.

It takes a certain eye to put together all the right elements to make each room and every nook and cranny not only fabulous, but more importantly functional.

Each homeowner has their own vision and creative ways to realise their dream home, but getting good advice from the right experts can often make a big difference in a successful home makeover.

At this weekend’s new Friday Masterclass, Friday Lite has partnered with UAE homegrown brand DWELL to help homeowners take out the guess work when making design decisions for their homes.

It’s a fantastic opportunity to learn the tricks of the trade and gain a deeper understanding of

At 7 a.m. one recent Tuesday morning, the crew from El Compadre already had their hands in the dirt of an urban farm in Point Breeze, clearing-out fallow beds and turning the soil of their newly acquired garden plots, even gathering their lucky first harvest, a bushy green purslane left by previous tenants.

Containers of rice with braised beef are filled at the People’s Kitchen at El Compadre in Philadelphia, Pa. on July 15, 2020. The group made 200 meals for the needy.

“Purslane is a very delicious weed that a lot of the gardeners don’t care about,” says Carly Pourzand, 27, an avid gardener who’s also been coordinating the transformation this spring of El Compadre into the People’s Kitchen, where these greens would soon be cooked.

As more restaurants have been mandated to offer only takeout or delivery service amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, Olive Garden is offering a new buy-one, get-one meal deal — and, in true never-ending style, customers are able to use it as many times as they like.

This is the first time in the restaurant’s history that a promotion is being offered solely as a takeout or delivery option.

Guests will be able to choose between several hot “Buy One” options, like the chain’s classic fettuccine Alfredo, cheese ravioli, lasagna or chicken Parmigiana. Then, they can select a “Take One” option (of equal or lesser value), which will be packaged up and chilled, ready to be popped in the freezer or fridge for a next-day meal. Orders can be placed online or by phone, and entrees start at $12.99.

No bathroom remodeling project is as satisfying as making over a clunky old shower by installing new shower heads, tearing out plastic and tiling the walls, and increasing your water pressure. The cost for a shower remodel really depends on your overall bathroom remodeling project. Nationally, the average cost of a total bathroom remodeling project is $14,000, including the cost of the shower remodel. For a standard bathroom renovation — including taking out the shower and shower pan and installing new shower pan and shower, new shower door, new vanity, new mirror, new bathroom fan, and all new fixtures — the average price might range from $6,500 to $10,000 for labor.

If you don’t need foundational work (like a new shower pan) but want a tile makeover in your shower, the average national cost for tiling a shower is $3,875. The average cost for bathroom tile is $25 per square

It’s spring and so even with all the stress and sorrow over the coronavirus pandemic, we look forward to precious holidays, buds and blooms.

How are you celebrating Passover and Easter this year? Are you going to gather with family and friends on Facebook, through Zoom?

Food writer Susan Barocas, who is joining us for the chat today, plans to that. And she offers a few variations on favorite Passover dishes, such as a vegetarian matzoh ball soup, a nut-free haroset and a delicious herby kuku, for a year that will be less than traditional

Even if you’re enjoying the meal with your small household, your brisket is a great idea because you can enjoy the leftovers throughout the holiday. Try Ellie Krieger’s terrifically tender recipe. Ellie also is joining us for the chat.
